Basic Facts

My aliens' name is Jake. Jake is 39 years old on earth. He is 21.7 Martian years old. Jake would weigh 170 on earth. He would weigh 64 pounds on Mars. Mars is a terrestrial planet.

Mars is four planets away from the sun and it also has two small moons. They are named Phobos and Deimos. Deimos is only 9.9  (11) kilometers in length. Phobos is 18 kilometers in diameter. The atmosphere on Mars is 1% of Earths atmosphere. Mars composition is like earths. It has a core that is mainly iron and sulfur, wrapped in a mantle that is silicates, all of which is cocooned by a crust that is made of basalt and just enough iron oxide to give the planet it characteristic reddish hue. The forecast on Mars is usually dramatic. The weather varies quite a bit day to day and, sometimes, hour to hour. That seems a bit unusual for a planet that has an atmosphere that is only 1% as dense as the Earth’s. The temperature on Mars may reach a high of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit and 20 degrees Celsius at noon.
